I was completely stunned (in a good way), by how well-kept and beautiful this park/fort/monument was. A great way to visit the Wall.

Replicated wall so nothing historical to see, one side is a beach with tacky burger bar etc. & the other a massively ugly port! We went out of season which I recommend as the beach was empty and therefore clean, & v few people around....More

Overpriced and really nothing much! Total waste of time. Period. Situated outside beidaihe, nearer to Qinhuangdao. But close to other attractions like MengJiangNu Temple.

It was raining all day when we went. But it was worth it! We did have the place to ourselves, and the view was still amazing!

This place is a starting point of the Great wall. Although it is fully reconstructed, I was filled with ineffable emotions. It is very different impression between here and a mountain side of the Great wall. It is easy to climb up??

This part of the wall is worth visiting if you are in the area. We stayed one night in Qinhuangdao and made a trip here from the hotel in the morning. You can buy tickets online in advance and pick them up at a machine...More
